Got to love the democratic brain washing operation. Taking more money from more people hurts the economy but taking more money from less rich people does not hurt the economy.
Taking money = Taking money because .... Money = Money.
$100 million from rich people = $100 million from middle class people.
It's the same $100 million not being spent that could be spent.
You save money by spending less ... you cut your budget =
I say ___% cut across the board all programs.
I say ___% increase in revenue across the board everyone earning over $50K.
Or fiscal cliff ... which is what we need ... a harsh slap across the dome of American politicians.
As for those in the thread who think a more vibrant economy will produce more taxable income to payoff our deficit ...
... they will find ways to spend it - they always have and always will until we are broken.
